First Day of Summer!!!

Today is the first day of Summer and Todd took the day off to spend with Taj and I.  Ethan had to work and Noah did not want to participate with our plans for the day.  We started our day with the Farmer's Market and had breakfast there.  I love the local organic burrito at one of the stands.  I was able to take a picture of one of the Herky on Parade 2.  Here is a little sneak peek of it.

 
After shopping and picking up only snap peas and peppers for our stir fry tomorrow (the remaining will come from our own garden) well we did pick up a muffin top and a cinnamon roll for Taj.  We went to the children's activity where Taj played with bubbles and side walk chalk.
 
I also picked up some fresh flowers.  I LOVE THEM!!!

We came home for a little while and then off to one of many parks Iowa City has to offer.
This is the park where the community garden is.  We checked on our garden there.
Just look at him follow his Papa down the walk way.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

We went for a little walk in there garden walk.
 This is one of the parks my older boys go and play Frisbee Golf.
 They lost most of their flowers because of the frigid cold Winter we had.
They also have new cherry trees.
We spent a lot of time at the splash pad.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 After being dried off we then came home and had lunch.  After lunch it was nap time and time for a lot of snuggling time.  I love Taj snuggles.

What did you do to celebrate the first day of Summer?

  2. We've had summer weather here for a long time already, so we didn't do anything to celebrate the first official day of summer. Looks like you all had a wonderful day! Taj is so happy!
